Constellation Technologies Ltd is a spin out SME from STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.

Grid/cloud computing is an exciting growth area of IT services but requires consider- able skills in developing products and services that are useful and easy to use for customers. Translating the theoretical benefits from using grid/cloud computing into real advantages within businesses is both complicated and problem specific.

Constellation supplies any grid/cloud computing solution to any customer needing ac- cess to massive computing tasks. Large scale computing requirements can be found across many industrial sectors; financial services, pharmaceutical/biotech, media, metrology, engineering and many others. The service depends on the demand but almost always involves grid, cloud and application program development Constellation already has already sold cloud solutions to a major pharmaceutical company by providing expertise and technology to addressing their large computing challenges. The Company is also involved in a number of other initiatives to exploit the research work developed from the UK and European research base.
